Pontiac’s RazorThreat adds clients, hires staff

Greg Guidice isn’t afraid of the rise in
Internet crime. In fact he sees it as an opportunity. Of course, it
helps that he is CEO of a computer security firm — RazorThreat.

“The
cyber crime industry is larger than the illegal drug industry,”
Guidance says. “It’s a $900 billion a year industry. In 2008, the
private sector lost $1 trillion to cyber crime.”

Which is turning
into a window of opportunity for the downtown Pontiac-based firm that
only opens wider. The 4-year-old company started with three people and
now employs five with an occasional independent contractor. More hires
could be on hand in the next year as it continues to grow.

RazorThreat
has focused on expanding its revenues and profit margins, partly by
attracting more public sector clients. It’s now looking to partner with
more technology firms, such as reseller who can distribute its product.

“We’re also looking for strategic partners where our products are complimentary,” Guidice says.
